National Concussion League (NCL): Culture of Denial

Every boy wants to be a football star. It is the ultimate dream of masculinity and success. That is why the NFL has made billions of dollars. 

What the NFL has left out in the glamour is the damage that these players/gladiators suffer- concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) with long term devastating effect. 

From the early years of peewee league, little boys are taught to tough it out. This culture is manifest throughout high school and then if you're "that good" COLLEGE!!!

"Shake it off" is what the little guys are told when they get a heavy hit or medically known as a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). This "Culture of Denial" perpetuates and pervades since toughness is the name of the game.
